Oh! Definitely get a book. Even just from the library for free. I recommend any of the older Atkins books, one that was actually written by Dr. Atkins himself. But, you should really read anything and everything you can get your hands on regarding Low Carb Dieting.

My favorites are:

Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It by Gary Taubes
Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes
The Diet Cure by Julia Ross
The Mood Cure by Julia Ross
The Carbohydrate Addicts Diet by The Hellers
Know Your Fats by Mary Enig
of course, anything by Dr. Atkins !
The entire Weston A. Price website
This wonderful amazing Low Carb Friends website-- so full of amazing people and information and inspiration and real life success stories!

The more you know the easier it is!

Hi Karra,
Welcome!
I just checked my Atkins book and YES spaghetti squash is in the induction list of allowed vegies. It lists 1/4 cup of cooked squash as 2 net carbs.

Hope this helps!

Breakfast:
3 eggs scrambled in butter, 3 Costco Tarantino brand sausages



Lunch:
Simply Recipes “Tuna Salad Sandwich” recipe (sans bread, natch)


Recipe review: I really liked it! Tasted fresh and pleasantly kind of Mediterranean. I just dumped everything in a bowl with only eyeballing the measurements, so it wasn’t *exactly* like hers, but it was really delicious! The capers and parsley were a nice touch! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED RECIPE!



Dinner:
Roasted pork chop w/ garlic, salt, pepper & rosemary
fresh broccoli w/ plain mayo dip

Hi Karra, If you go to the Atkins web site it is listed on the induction list. 1/2 cup is 2 carbs. I just printed the list to keep handy. Your lunch looks yummy by the way.

You're welcome! They are all my personal favorites and are what have guided me best on this journey to better health and fat loss. The Weston Price website is not low carb per se, but it is all about eating healthy natural real foods and has a lot of eyepopping information about our food supply, food politics, and the general malaise of the population. Those people are DAMN SMART. Much smarter than me! I hope you are able to glean some personal insight from some of it as I did. The more you know!

Hi Karra! I bought mine at Costco, but they are also available in all the local grocery stores around here. Not too sure about Target, their grocery department is pretty limited. Here's what they look like, always in the frozen department:



I always cook the crap out of mine, I like them VERY crispy. They are already cooked, but I cook them again at 425 for an hour-- yeah, CRISPY. But, I'm weird that way. Really, they just need to be heated up. I do recommend using some non-stick foil (not regular, but non-stick) so they come off the pan easier-- they like to stick and then half the wing is left stuck to the pan.

I hope you can find them! They are tasty. They are my "I'm too lazy to think about cooking" meal. So naturally, I eat them all the time.

Hi Riatha! They are Foster Farms brand frozen Hot 'n' Spicy Wings, found in the frozen section of your grocery store. They require no preparation, just dump in a pan and bake 'em up! I like mine extra crispy so I cook them longer than the instructions say. If you scroll up a little on this page I posted a pic of the package. Wings in the freezer at-the-ready is a a great weapon for a low carber to have in the arsenal!

Another great way to make wings is to coat plain wings with Frank's Hot Sauce and butter and then cook them-- that is a more wholesome way to go as the ingredients in Frank's is not all chemically like the Foster Farms... but I buy them for convenience so I let them slide on the dubious ingredients.

Brilliant on the chips. I made taco salad yesterday and was disappointed in the carbs in taco seasoning (and the salsa for that matter - but no solution for that yet) so I used plain curry and it was delicious and saved me 2-3 carbs .

Celery Hearts
Avocados
Grape or Campari tomatoes
Red, orange & yellow peppers

huh. I spend a lot of money at Costco.

Also check out their fresh berries and melons, frozen berries, Organic Natural Peanut Butter, Large assortment of Nuts, Frozen Salmon patties, Frozen Turkey Burgers, Jarred Mediteranean Olive Salad, Gertie's Artichoke Tapenade, Giant awesome cheese assortment... shoot, Costco is a Low Carber's Paradise!

You can make your own taco seasoning with practically zero carbs-- just buy the spices and put them together yourself! Chili powder, cumin, garlic, etc. I can't imagine a curry taco-- -- glad it was good!

I love the idea of having pictures of meals since they're so inspiring! What gorgeous, tasty looking meals!

I started this several years ago on my blog and have gone back to that page to get LC inspiration and ideas. (Some are just cell phone shots, so the pic quality is not all that good.)

The page hasn't been updated lately, but I'll see what I can do about that!
